Jump to recipe

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I have been BBQ’ing it up since Tracy delivered a new BBQ to us a few weeks ago.  I was so excited to finally have a critter free BBQ again that I started BBQ’ing that day and haven’t stopped since.  Did I mention the BBQ she delivered is actually bigger, which means more room for all the meat and veggies!! I’ve been dying to make some chicken skewers and I finally got my chance! You’re also getting a bonus recipe today!  Paired with these skewers is a light Greek Lentil Salad perfect for Spring and Summer!

Basically you’ll just throw your chicken in a bag with the marinade for a couple hours, jab them onto the skewers, and then cook them.  It’s quite simple and a just a lot more fun for everyone to eat this delicious chicken off a stick.

Once you get your chicken marinating you’ll want to cook your lentils. Truthfully, this is the first time I’ve ever made lentils.  I’ve made this Greek salad recipe with couscous several times, but I went with lentils today because they’re packed with much more protein and fiber. I’m pretty sure any variety of lentils will work, but here’s a look at the ones I grabbed from the grocery store to use. I just cooked them according to the directions on the back of the bag.Packed with protein and fiber, try this summer salad today!

Once you’re lentils are cooked you’ll just add all the other ingredients together and refrigerate. Did I mention this side dish is super simple!?

Macros for the lentil salad: 1/2 cup (105 grams) = 7.8g protein, 11.9 grams carbohydrates, 1.3 grams fat & 4.5 grams FIBER!!

      Correction: What is the NUMBER* of servings!?

      • Reply Krista Pool July 11, 2020 at 10:46 am

        Hi Chandler! They each make about 12 servings. 13 for the Greek Lentil Salad to be exact, about 12 for the chicken depending on how well you cook the chicken.

    Hi! So the value for 6 oz of cooked chicken and 1/2 cup of the lentil salads is in the nutrition or do you have to add the lentil salad to it?

    • Reply Krista Pool February 26, 2021 at 10:36 am

      Hi! That’s just for the chicken. The nutritional info for the lentil salad is listed in the notes. Both are in MyFitnessPal also.

    Could this be baked in oven rather than grill?

    • Reply Krista Pool January 29, 2022 at 9:05 am

      Absolutely. Put it in a casserole dish and just make sure the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165.

    Hi! In the Honey Glazed Chicken Skew recipe what is the amount for the pineapple juice? It says 1/4 pineapple juice it is cup, teaspoon, tablespoon etc? Thanks! I look forward to making this!

      Hi Christine,

      Sorry about that! I’ll update it. It should be 1/4 cup pineapple juice.

    Hello Krista,
    I noticed the 1/2 lemon in the lentil photo but it isn’t listed in the ingredients for the lentil recipe. Would it be safe to assume that you squeezed the lemon juice into the mixture?

      Oh so sorry! Yes I did!
